Do I need to cull or edit?
Nope! All you need to do is upload the RAW images or unedited video footage.

How does payment work?
After uploading your files, we'll process your payment via direct deposit into your bank account weekly!


How does the assignment process work?
You’ll maintain an online calendar showing your availability. We’ll rely on your calendar to book weddings. Once we’ve booked a wedding for you, you’ll be notified via email and SMS about the assignment. 

For dates you don't request off it means you've marked yourself as "available". This means you are 100% available, and asking us to book a job for you.

Can I change my calendar?
Yes, you can change your availability calendar at any time — provided you don’t already have an assigned wedding.

Can I change my mind after getting an assignment?
No. Keep in mind, we’ll only assign weddings on the dates you mark yourself as available. If you mark yourself as unavailable, you won’t receive any assignments. You’ll need to contractually agree to photograph all the weddings you are assigned. If you cancel, or don’t show up, you are responsible financially. We take commitments extremely seriously. If you aren’t sure you want to photograph a wedding on a certain date, you should mark yourself as unavailable for that date.

What if I decide to take a vacation, or receive an inquiry for my own business?
We take commitments extremely seriously. Once you've marked yourself as available and received an assignment, you are obligated to photograph or film that wedding.

You'll receive assignments for dates you haven't requested off.

What if I’m late to a wedding?
Short of an emergency, there is no excuse for being late to a wedding. Our clients hire us because we are reliable. Traffic might be awful. There could be a road detour. Your GPS could send you down the wrong road. Our clients expect us to plan ahead. 

What equipment is required?
Lead photographers are required to have 2 full-frame camera bodies. Videographers must have 2 cameras and wireless microphones.

Can I promote my own business name?
No. You represent Limelight Entertainment & Photography. You cannot promote your own business for any reason.
